    Video: 1,400 American Workers Outraged as Company Informs Them It’s Sending Their Jobs to Mexico

    Video footage has emerged documenting the outrage and desperation of 1,400 American workers as they are informed that their company will be sending their jobs to Mexico.

    As Mediaite reports: “A cell phone video taken at Carrier Air Conditioner in Indianapolis shows the exact moment that the plant and union workers were told that the company had decided to shift production south of the border. ‘The best way to stay competitive and protect the business for longterm is to move production from our facility in Indianapolis to Monterrey, Mexico,’ says the company representative at the microphone.”

    “Let’s quiet down,” the company representative says as the American workers of different races and ethnicities begin to shout out after being told that they will soon be out of a job.

    Although the establishment media seems loath to report it, globalist trade deals and the off-shoring of American jobs have become a central focus of the 2016 race– as earlier this month President Obama’s signed what could arguably be one of the impactful trade agreements in modern history, the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    The Economic Policy Institute has documented that “Between 1993 (before NAFTA took effect) and 2013, the U.S. trade deficit with Mexico and Canada increased from $17.0 billion to $177.2 billion, displacing more than 850,000 U.S. jobs.”

    “More than 5 million U.S. manufacturing jobs were lost between 1997 and 2014, and most of those job losses were due to growing trade deficits with countries that have negotiated trade and investment deals with the United States,” the report states.

    Mexico is a member country of the TPP. The Economic Policy Institute notes, “the United States already has a large and growing trade deficit with the 11 other countries in the proposed TPP, which reached $265.1 billion in 2014. In contrast, the United States had a small trade surplus with Mexico in 1993, before NAFTA took effect. In other words, outsourcing to the TPP countries is a potentially much greater threat than it was under NAFTA with Mexico.”

    What are you talking about? Bernie's been an outspoken critic of NAFTA and the other free trade agreements for decades. Getting us out of them is a big part of his campaign.

    Yes. All corporations will kneel in the presence of The Donald and bring back all the jobs.

    Bernie sanders has voted against every free trade bill he has ever seen, and once sponsored a bill to remove the US from the WTO charter, which would have ended every trade deal we have ever signed.

    This is why hate my International union right now, and other unions as well. Sanders is the first real labor candidate in 40 years, and the cowards running the unions showed their true colors.

    Trump can steal away a lot of black votes. Trump's message of immigrants taking jobs and our leaders sending other jobs overseas resonates with blacks who struggle to find meaningful employment. Hillary and Bernie don't quite understand that foodstamps and welfare are not the goal of all black Americans.

    I think trump could steal away a lot of working class people, including minority votes with his populist message against Clinton.

    I am one though that believes sanders populist message is superior to trumps.

    A guy tells you about Sanders' consistent anti-free trade voting record and your response is to inform him that not all black people want to be on food stamps? What... what's it like in there?

    Hillary will stick to the status quo. Sanders or Trump are most likely to support domestic manufacturing, but am skeptical on Trump's sincerity. The other GOP candidates won't do a dam thing to bring manufacturing back, the GOP movers and shakers are the party of big business.

    Be nice if you google first before you do an attack on someone's position.

    Yay. Another new trash account.

    During this redesign period, this would be the perfect time to implement what we've all wanted forever - no thread starting from new accounts. I'd estimate 75% of the shit posting I see going on comes from accounts 6 months or newer, usually 1 month.
